The Georges Mathias Tradition

Georges Mathias was one of the most crucial figures in transmitting Chopin´s pianism to the next generations. The impact of his teaching was felt in countries such as Portugal through Alexandre Rey Colaço, in the United States through James Huneker and Ernest Schelling, in Spain through José Tragó, in Argentina through Alberto Williams and in France through Isidor Philipp. The far reaching effects of this tradition have come down to our present day through Maurizio Pollini and Maria-João Pires.
